Setup SVN For Multiple Users[edit]

Creat umask wrapper scripts to protect permissions on the database.

# backup
mv /usr/bin/svn /usr/bin/svn.orig &&
mv /usr/bin/svnserve /usr/bin/svnserve.orig &&
# create skripts
cat >> /usr/bin/svn << "EOF" &&
#!/bin/sh
umask 002
/usr/bin/svn.orig "$@"
EOF
cat >> /usr/bin/svnserve << "EOF" &&
#!/bin/sh
umask 002
/usr/bin/svnserve.orig "$@"
EOF
# set perms
chmod 0755 /usr/bin/svn{,serve}
# debian add diversion 
#/usr/sbin/dpkg-divert --divert /usr/bin/svn.orig  --add /usr/bin/svn
#/usr/sbin/dpkg-divert --divert /usr/bin/svnserve.orig  --add /usr/bin/svnserve


Setup SVN For Group Access[edit]

Add a group which has r/w access to the repository.

addgroup --system svn

Add the user running the apache process to the svn group. Either by editing /etc/group directly or by:

usermod -g www-data -G svn apache

The svn group needs write access to the svn repository database.

REP=/home/svn/repository
chown svn:svn -R $REP/
chmod -R g+w $REP/
chmod g+s $REP/db

Create Trac Wiki[edit]

mkdir -p /home/www/trac/repository
trac-admin /home/www/trac/repository initenv

Edit Trac Options[edit]

trac-admin /home/www/trac/repository
vi conf/trac.ini

Change Permissions On The Trac Wiki[edit]

The apache user needs full access to the trac directory.

chown -R www-data  /home/www/trac/repository/*
